How to create a beautiful Low-Tech scape?

I'm getting rid of all the HC in my tank and switching to only plants that require little to no maintenance. However, I don't like the messy look of most shrimp/no-tech tanks. Are there any good guides for the sort? It is Iwagumi, so that might effect it.

You could culture Moss on rocks. Simply attach with a drop of Super Glue Gel. Trim occasionally, replant trimmed pieces. Pretty simply low tech low maine. 'scape.

Plant lots and lots of easy to grow plants, very densely too.

stone scapes can be very simple, rock, single plant for foreground and maybe a background plant. mosses or mini pellia or MM or MQ.
